Worcestershire Children and Young People's Plan

Worcestershire Children and Young People

Our vision is for Worcestershire to be a wonderful place for all children and young people to grow up.

This plan is owned by all agencies working with children, young people and families in Worcestershire 

  • the plan will set expectations around the way all agencies will work
  • focus on key priorities and success measures
  • clarify our collective ambition and aspirations for all children and young people
  • build on and add value to existing plans and will change over time to respond to need
  • provide a framework for all agencies and organisations working with children, young people and families to make the necessary impact to improve lives

Working together all agencies will:

  • listen to, hear and understand children, young people and families
  • find strengths and build on positives to help people help themselves
  • prioritise partnerships – to improve outcomes, doing things with people, instead of to them, for them or doing nothing
  • focus on adding value. Keep asking is anyone better off? Is anyone worse off?
  • be brave enough to always do the right thing for children and young people

Worcestershire's Children and Young People's Plan has partnered with West Mercia Police for cyber bullying campaign: #BeCyberSmart

West Mercia Police is working with a number of national charities, schools, professionals and other partners to share information about cyber bullying and online harassment. This campaign has clear links with the Children and Young People's Plan priorities. West Mercia Police have created a number of resources which offer information on support and guidance young people (and their families) need to tackle online abuse, which can have a serious impact on those involved.

Worcestershire Children and Young People's Plan Survey Results

To inform the development of this new plan a range of consultation methods were set in motion to ensure maximum engagement with all interested parties and importantly with children and young people themselves. Five key questions were asked from five different perspectives - those of a child, young person, parent/carer, practitioner or other interested citizen.

Over 2,590 responses were received providing a rich source of information about the challenges facing children and young people and how their lives could be improved.
